How Business Gateway helped Mearns Opticians focus on growth

Since establishing Mearns Opticians in 2015 Gerry O’Hear and his wife Gerri have developed the business into one of the leading opticians in East Renfrewshire.

Gerri said: “Not only is Gerry one of only a handful of independent prescribers in the area but we have developed a range of services that we know are important to those living in the local community including dry eye treatment in our specialist clinics, elderly care and domiciliary visits. Although the business was doing well the couple knew there was room to grow and that was when they looked to Business Gateway for some specialist support.

Business Gateway’s workshops also gave me a good grounding in key marketing and social media skills.

“Our adviser has helped us with networking and was a huge support with our marketing strategy. We now have a plan that will help us take the business to the next level.

“Business Gateway’s workshops also gave me a good grounding in key marketing and social media skills and we signed up to the DigitalBoost programme which has helped us to get our new website up and running.”
